A Green New Deal for CT

We organized the Connecticut Shoreline Campaign to push for a Connecticut Green New Deal as a response to both the climate crisis and the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis. We are using art and media to educate residents living along the Connecticut coast and to mobilize them to advocate for strong action to reduce climate threats. We hope to engage individuals and organizations in pressuring elected leaders in the Connecticut Senate and House who live along the Shoreline, as well as Governor Lamont, to pass a Connecticut Green New Deal.  

Components of a Green New Deal for Connecticut Recovery:

  • Set a statewide goal of eliminating climate pollution by 2030

  • Commit a "just transition" from fossil fuels to a clean energy economy

  • Immediately cease all permitting and other approvals for fossil fuel infrastructure

  • Invest in green jobs - clean energy, energy efficiency, healthy transportation.
